This looks like a great trainer/sport jet, looks similar to the turbinator design.

That looks like a big plane for a 80-100N engine.

I will try and post some actual airframe photos next week. Expected release price is 999.00 for the kit with hardware. The fuselage design provides a split just forward of the intakes offering a substantial reduction in box sizing, resulting in a substantial savings in delivery costs.
We will also offer complete gear sets specific to the Ventrix in both Electric and Pneumatic versions.

Yes, the Pantera has been around for awhile, but I don't think it was fully developed at the time. I do believe it will be finished at a later date and made available, but I do not know when, and have no idea of a timeline.

Pantera is an older kit currently going through some updated design revisions, we expect to have them in stock later this year....

Todd that looks cool!
Will there be any different paint scheme options?

What about spare parts?

Thanks

First batch will be all the same scheme to expedite production. Additional schemes have not been solidified but are in the works. Spares will be stocked!

Current estimates for delivery is late May to mid June. I can start taking a wait list when we get back from FJ

Looks similar to the ARG Dynamo only a bit smaller size and price also not glass.

Close in size as the Dynamo, and agreed there are some slight similarities in the profile. We were actually interested in distributing the ARG line in the US; unfortunately the Dynamo sizing results in shipping via freight, driving delivery costs way up and I didn't feel there was much market for a "trainer" class aircraft in the $4200+ price range delivered with gear. The Ventrix is less than half the cost of of the Dynamo; and for that matter, less expensive than virtually every entry-level /sport jet currently available.

The latest model (which will be on display at FJ) has had the nose slightly extended to minimize the amount of balance weight required, keeping total weight to a minimum. Rigorous testing will be performed this month on several class motors, including the VT80.

Do you have the weight of the plane without equipment.?

Good looking plane. Any plans to distribute it in europe? Will it be available at JetPower?

By the way - Will it be available without the Audi and other product logos? I never understood why someone wants to put logos of car or other companies on their planes...
